In Romania there are 103 municipalities and 300 cities with the potential of smart city

Are the cities and their infrastructure ready?

We come back this year with a new edition of the event to discuss several issues: what is the state of smart city development, what are the future projects on smart city field, what are the needs and what solutions are offered by the private companies.

We will discuss again about how a city can become smart, how can a city to put the technological force at the service of economic development in order to offer a better life for its citizens and to save resources.

Smart City is a project based on the development of partnerships with associations, companies, R&D institutes, universities and, last but not least, the volunteers who will jointly contribute to building smart cities and increasing the quality of citizens’ lives


The conference aims to create a platform for interaction and knowledge exchange among the key actors involved in urban development issues, namely:

(a) citizens and policy makers;

(b) scientific community; and

(c) industry and local stakeholders.

This interaction will support the building of bonds of both horizontal nature (within the above groups, e.g. cities, industry, academia) and vertical nature (among cities, academia and industry), opening up a range of new opportunities and challenges for future cooperation.
